Talking Trees: What is Diplodia Tip Blight?


In this episode of Talking Trees, Davey Expert and ISA Certified Arborist Jim Houston discusses Diplodia Tip Blight and ways to prevent damage to your pine trees.

Diplodia tip blight is a tree disease that affects many conifer trees, such as, mugo, scots, white, red and ponderosa pines, but most commonly the austrian pine. It is characterized by brown, stunted growth.

Two key methods for preventing diplodia tip blight damage to pine trees are keeping the tree fertilized and well watered and applying supplemental treatments to the pine tree in the spring. 

If you think diplodia tip blight is affecting your trees, contact your local certified arborist for an inspection.
